Fireflies

Fireflies

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*
"

Memories of love and another broken heart.

"

Milford Sound in New Zealand

 

 

The midnight sky smiled brightly,

Upon the trees swaying in the moonlight.

Gentle breezes whisper from the shadows,

This will be one night to forever remember.

 

Gems shined along the horizons of the Earth

As glittering tears fell from universal skies.

Telling a tale all their own of distant memories

Held within a trail of flames falling behind them.

 

I stared forever into your blue velvet eyes,

Searching for an answer to a common riddle.

Love's burning temptations, reoccuring dreams

Can I finally consider you mine?

 

The galaxies of us intertwined

For one moment inside your tender kiss.

Fireflies fluttered about around us,

Flickering endless sparks as my heart sank.

 

I captured each moment of you,

And locked them tightly within a jar.

As you walked out on my heart,

I wished upon a star for you to return to me.

This is absolutely beautiful!! i loved it! the imagery is great. there are moments in our lives... brief and tender moments.. when we feel as if the entire universe, the world around us is a part, is an actor in the opera called life....

"The galaxies of us intertwined
For one moment inside your tender kiss."

the line captures the true essence of the poem.. very well done Anna :)

The sense of being there that you portray leads me to that place, a well written piece.

Artwork and poetry is amazing. I had to read again for the pleasure of the good description. Your strong words allowed the artwork to have life. I like the wish at the end of this poem.
